Phil Hellmuth Gets Friendly with George W. Bush

February 7th, 2011 Whatever people may think of Phil Hellmuth, no one can say he hasn’t ridden poker fame to spectacular heights. Last weekend, the Poker Brat crossed paths with former American President George W. Bush at Southern Methodist University. Both men were in Dallas to attend the Super Bowl. Hellmuth posted a picture of himself with the President on his Twitter account with the caption, “Pic: me answering questions from George Bush + Condi Rice. George tucked my book into his inner jacket pocket!” Party Poker sponsored pro Tony G has graciously offered to give $100 of his very own money to whoever posts the best caption to that picture on his Twitter account. Hellmuth, originally from Wisconsin, was at the Super Bowl to root for the Green Bay Packers who won the game 31-25. Not a bad weekend for the Poker Brat.
